[108.02] An Overview of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) System

C.W. Stubbs (Harvard University), D. Sweeney (LSST Corp), J.A. Tyson (UC Davis), LSST Collaboration

The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope will provide the astrophysics and astronomy communities with a leap in wide field survey capability. This paper will present a high-level overview of the project's design philosophy, structure, status and anticipated timeline. The LSST will be a community resource, with broad access to the data and no proprietary data witholding period. We encourage the community to think about they might exploit the LSST data, and in particular how frequent multiband imaging, to 24th magnitude, could enable innovative new science.
